In recent years, the increasing digitalization of industrial and production processes has generated and made available a considerable amount of data and information that needs to be stored, shared, processed and interpreted.
Managing and taking full advantage of such a quantity of “raw” data has become one of the main objectives not only at the level of scientific research but also a priority in the company field, which requires increasingly qualified and up-to-date professional profiles with respect to information engineering methodologies and tools. In this context, artificial intelligence, machine learning, cybersecurity and the Internet of Things (IoT) represent frontier technologies and essential tools in the digitalization and optimization of production processes and thus for economic and cultural growth. The digital transition of companies and public institutions is not just a matter of introducing digital tools and technologies in the execution of traditional processes but involves the redesign of processes, the introduction of automation, and even the development of new products and services enabled by digitalization. There is increasing use of servitization (or Subscription Economy), with subscription-based services. Leading this path must be an experienced figure in the field of Information Technology such as the junior graduate in Computer Engineering for Digital Transition.
The study curriculum is part of the degree class L-8 – Information Engineering. Therefore, the junior graduate in Computer Engineering for Digital Transition knows and can apply the principles of basic sciences and computer engineering sciences. In addition, the training of the Junior Engineer in Computer Engineering for Digital Transition deepens skills for the digitalization of production, logistics and public administration systems.
The employment opportunities for the undergraduates in Computer Engineering for Digital Transition include all those organizations, of any size and type (public or private), characterized by complex processes whose digitalization is to be engineered or managed: manufacturing, service and public administration companies; companies operating in the area of information systems and computer networks; service companies; public administration IT services; management systems and services for large infrastructures.
In addition to the mobility programs for students offered by LUM Giuseppe Degennaro University, specific mobility programs may be planned for students in this degree program. The possible prosecution of the studies may take place in a “Laurea Magistrale” offered by LUM Giuseppe Degennaro University or by other Universities, after checking the minimum access requirements set by each University.
